Military operations are typically associated with top-level precision. This is for good reason. The highly sensitive nature of assets and information make effective asset management of critical concern. Some assets are potentially lethal and pose a dire security threat if they fall into the wrong hands. Technology is averting this risk. Smart technologies mean military GPS tracking devices are becoming increasingly advanced, allowing for a detailed view of all assets at all times.
The Journal reported that the US Military lost $1 billion in assets in the Middle East.
THE CHALLENGES ALLEVIATED BY MILITARY GPS TRACKING DEVICES
- Consistent, reliable visibility of all assets
- Remoteness of location – and multi-location visibility
- Full supply chain visibility of assets
- The expense and disruption of loss and theft
- Broken data chains in the effectiveness of reporting and accountability
- Guesswork around maintenance schedules
- Limited chance of recovery in the event of theft
- Manual inventory management
- The risk of human error throughout the supply chain
A GRANULAR VIEW OF ASSETS THROUGH MILITARY GPS TRACKING DEVICES
Military GPS tracking devices from NFC Group provide a 360-degree, 24/7 view of all assets. Through a simple system of IoT-driven tags, sensors, pressure pads, and gateways, everything from equipment and vehicle monitoring to fuel level management and vulnerable personnel tracking is possible.
Data is transmitted over a the secure, zero-trust Orion Data Network and data is always accessible over a remote dashboard. Alerts can be pre-programmed to notify commanders and allocated personnel of undesirable changes, perimeter and security breaches, and opportunities for maintenance and equipment utilisation.
These insights are available across the entire supply chain. This means everything from in-transit logistics to storage and base operations stand to benefit from smart monitoring and tracking.
HOW TO USE MILITARY GPS TRACKING DEVICES FOR STRATEGIC DECISION-MAKING
Traditional asset monitoring systems often encountered lost coverage and this led to gaps in data metrics. Today, data has become an intrinsic strategic tool. In looking at the movements, usage, and performance of equipment, one is empowered to strategise around optimised processes. This has a corresponding cost saving and opportunity for far enhanced efficiency and equipment lifespan.
EFFECTIVE INVENTORY MANAGEMENT AND ASSET DEPLOYMENT
The military GPS tracking device technology used by NFC Group provides these data insights in real time. The benefit of this for military applications is the ability to act in immediate and direct response to accurate data insights. These actionable insights are also achievable with a the advantage of a contextual view within which to strategise and plan the best way forward.
Where critical assets go down or are lost, this can be managed to best effect through timeous reaction. This also offers insights into available inventory, when shortages are anticipated, and allows for action to mitigate the chance of disruptions and aid in continuity. This not only ensures the ongoing daily operations of military applications, but increases certainty around their ability to respond in emergency situations.
USING MILITARY GPS TRACKING DEVICES FOR ENHANCED RECOVERABILITY
Time is of the essence when it comes to theft of high-value military assets. The instant notifications in the event of perimeter and security breaches, coupled with the continued tracking of equipment, increases chances of recoverability.
DEVELOPING A HIGHLY OPTIMISED MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE
Maintenance of critical military assets is crucial to continuity of operations. Maintenance serves not only to ensure ongoing working order of machinery, but also the quality of performance. Where these machines go down, there is potential for everything to grind to a halt. The military asset tracking solutions from NFC Group ensure maintenance is done with optimised regularity to keep emissions down, performance at its best, and the benefit of planning around maintenance.
